Individuals can attend open courses that are delivered primarily to Cardiff City Council staff at Trowbridge Community Centre and locations around Cardiff. Alternatively, we can come to your organisation and deliver training in-house. We can develop training tailored to your organisation’s need.

Certain courses may incur a small surcharge if there are extra materials needed to deliver the course. We will let you know about this at the time of booking. Please contact us for prices to deliver courses for your organisation outside of South East Wales.
